The Scottish Photography Experience 2022
What a year of activity! I was on the road, constantly, from the end of March to the middle of November, playing catch-up with Outlander and Clanlands tours that were booked in 2019, prior to the Global Pandemic. 2022 has been a challenge. When the flood gates opened, after the relaxation of lockdown measures, Scotland’s tourism industry went crazy! Hotels fully booked through to the end of October this year – unheard of previously!
On a sad note there were a number of fatal car accidents involving visitors to Scotland, the highest rate in over 20 years. Scotland’s roads are a challenge to foreign visitors (normally) driving on the opposite side of the road to which they are accustomed! I always recommend taking the stress away from you! Book a local tour guide, be it me or someone else, you should be in safe hands.
Some of the Outlander filming locations have been closed for the better part of 3 years now, while Historic Environmental Scotland carry out high level masonry inspections. Extremely frustrating, but necessary. Nonetheless, I believe my tour groups were extremely happy with the locations visited on each tour.
I am looking forward to touring again in 2023 and I do recommend booking as early as you can to secure the dates you wish to travel.
I have recently added two new tours: Whisky Distillery Tour https://jameschristiephotography.com/whisky-distillery-tour/ and the very latest tour: Mary Was Here https://jameschristiephotography.com/mary-was-here-photography-tour-scotland/
I am working on developing another new, innovative and original photography tour and I hope to have it live and available for booking before the end of this year.
